We have control over what happens to us in the future. There is no destiny or fate. There is nothing that will happen for sure. We determine our future from what we do now. We make our own future from our own actions, and nothing or no one else is responsible.
If you work hard every day to train for a sport, you will succeed and win. It is not the work of God or fate that you have succeeded; it is YOU who have made this success for yourself. Had you not trained, you would not have this success. No fate but what we make. You made yourself a better athlete, so you excelled. You made your own fate.
